Happy Sunday everyone! With Christmas popping up in a couple weeks, we head over to the Island of St. Lucia for a Christmas classic. Our selection today comes from the late Calypso legend, the Mighty Pélay ‘s track, “No More Gift For Christmas“! This was released by the WIRL label in 1977, and was featured on the Christmas album, “Merry Christmas Our Way From Mighty Pelay“. While Christmas is synonymous with gift giving, Pélay has a few regrets on this song as he has made the claim to never give gifts nor even ask for any during the season. From purchasing a suit for someone who never wore it, to giving a bed to a girlfriend, only for her to disrespect him in return, to a lot more. Don’t be an Ebenezer Scrooge this Christmas, just be mindful who you gift.
Happy Saturday everyone! Whether you’re chilling or staying busy, get ready to party for a few minutes thanks to ZJ Fuse’s latest installment in his “Freestyle Chronicles” series. With part 6, Fuse gives us over 40 mins of fun with hits from the likes of Aidonia, Squash, JahVillani, Govana, Vybz Kartel, Popcaan, Skillibeng, and many more!

After giving us the track a few weeks ago, Daniel Caesar took the trip to Jamaica for the “Cyanide (Remix)” video featuring Koffee! Directed by Keavan Yazdani and Sean Brown for theENDS, the video features a cameo from Comedian Brothers Jermaine and Trevaunn Richards a.k.a. 4 Y’all Ent. With scenes shot at Hellshire Beach and at the Caymanas Park Track, the duo give us that remix we’ve been enjoying so much as we follow the journey of their Race Horse “Cyanide” getting groomed, taking the trek to the Race Track, and racing his way to victory much to the delight of Koffee and Daniel. Will “Cyanide” win it all? You’d have to watch it to find out.
For those wanting more of Koffee, she’ll be joining Recording Artist Harry Styles on the South American leg of his “Love On Tour“! Sweet melody, check out the video below, and share with a friend. Show us some love/follow us on Twitter and Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.
It’s December, and it’s that time of year when we celebrate Christmas on Oldies Sunday! Today we start off the month Parang style with Trini legend Kenny J’s “De Paint Brush“! Handling the production by himself (Kenny Joseph), the track was released in 1993 through the Crosby’s label. The song highlights a holiday tradition in the Caribbean where the household goes through some cleaning in order to accommodate friends and family, and welcome the Christmas Spirit. Reaching for his Paint Brush, Kenny J looks forward to giving various parts of the house a fresh coat of paint. Kenny is also joined by Bobby who adds some lyrics throughout the song to give it more vibes.
For those new to Parang, this is usually a collection of popular folk songs or traditional songs that reflect the Christmas season and its meaning (similiar to Christmas Carols). It originated in Venezuela and Trinidad & Tobago, and are usually performed by Parranderos, or some of your favourite Artists.
We hope we’ve helped in starting your Christmas season off in a great way! Check out the track below, and share with a friend. Show us some love/follow us on Twitter and Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.

Happy Friday everyone! While many of us are in the middle of Black Friday shopping all over the world, and our American friends are still sleepy after their Thanksgiving feasts, we thought we’d put a lil pep in your step. Bringing back our #13thStreetThrowback Playlist series, we go back to the year 2002 to check out the “Diwali Riddim“!
Produced by Steven “Lenky” Marsden and released through the 40/40 Label, the Riddim gave us plenty memorable tracks from the likes of General Degree, Wayne Wonder, Buju Banton, Danny English, and timeless hits like a track called “Get Busy” by Sean Paul (which was featured on a multiplatinum album), and a duo named Brick & Lace with the hit, “Love Is Wicked“. The Riddim has also been sampled by Tiwa Savage, Thutmose, Lumidee, and a certain Superstar by the name of Rihanna.
